08:52 pm - This isn't just conflict anymore...it's a massacre
Coming from someone who's always lived in societies of relative, whether it be back in China, in the USA, or now in Canada, I seriously can't imagine how people live in places like this.  That's just....creepy, scary, horrifying.  By the time I was at the end of that article my brain was a spiderweb trying to take in who had been killed where and when and who survived what attack.  Canada oh Canada with your maple leafs and beaver tails, never do I feel more lucky to be your citizen then when I read the news.

It's funny you mention that because next Friday (not this one, but the 26th I believe) I leave for New York with the McGill delegation for peace studies to tour the UN! (Isn't that exciting, I'll try to get pics when I figure out how to work the camera!) But why that has any relevancy is that we are going to be talking about the "luck" of being a canadian and distanced from the reality of war and suffering. I think events in Iraq and the "hidden" atrocites of N. Korea and co. are not as distant from us as we'd like to believe. I think that ignoring the issue is fueling the problem. Try to seek out opportunities to voice your opinion, and get involved in youth politics (you are, after all, in Ottawa...lucky you!). Take care-james
